Emerson Exchange 2015 is right around the corner and we hope to see you in Denver!
The MYNAH team will be at booth #108 at the technology exhibit and we will be proudly showing:
Like many growing technology companies, MYNAH has had to deal with the question of how to staff to support its growth with limited experienced talent available. To meet our business growth needs we developed an aggressive program of finding, attracting and quickly growing the skills of young engineers. The program works! We will discuss our steps in getting to this point with our organization, the practices we use to hire and build our teams, the role of senior mentor engineers, the strengths of millennial engineers and the culture to succeed.
With the advancement of modern automation technology, the ethylene industry has seen significant growth. Unfortunately these advances present their own challenges. Operators are now responsible for much larger process areas and must learn to interface with a complex control system. Through a case study of a recent ethylene project, we see how operators can be successfully trained in an engaging and safe environment through the use of Lifecycle Dynamic Simulation.
As Lubrizol's operators near retirement age, oftentimes they are replaced with ones having little to no experience. The unit trainers responsible for training operators needed access to high quality simulations that would not interfere with production. Therefore, virtual machines licensed with DeltaV Simulate Pro were loaded with generic and unit-specific simulation models providing on-demand access for operator training. New operators were able to operate a similar DeltaV system and gain valuable fundamental knowledge while experienced operators improved their troubleshooting skills.
This session will be used to explain the virtualization and upgrade of a DeltaV PCS at Emergent BioSolutions Inc. in Lansing, Michigan. This system was upgraded alongside upgrades to a Mynah Mimic system, seven Allen-Bradley PLC skids and a Siemens Building Management System (BMS). A Mynah Mimic simulation system was also upgrade and virtualized. Redundancy was added at various levels to increase system reliability and stability in batch operation and data collection. OPC communication between DeltaV and BMS were redesigned after OPC Mirror failovers caused BMS OPC Server to fail.
If you are attending Emerson Exchange, please drop by our short courses and/or booth #108 in the technology exhibits. We would love to talk to you about Dynamic Simulation, Industrial Ethernet integration or your plant's specific operational requirements.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Denver!
